Hill City School District features teacher Jennifer Deuter

What grade/subject do you teach? 
Middle School Math
Where did you grow up and where did you go to college? 
I grew up in Sundance, Wyo., and went to college at Black Hills State University.
How long have you been a teacher? 
This is my 21st year of teaching.
Why did you become a teacher? 
I always wanted to be a teacher but just wasn’t sure what I wanted to teach until I had two great math teachers in junior high and high school (Tim Hoard and Bernie Schnorenberg).  They made math fun, understandable for all students and that is what I am hoping to do for my students.
What do you love about teaching?
The aha moments, when students finally understand a concept they have been struggling with! 
I also like the small school because you get to know all your kids and their families.
Would you like to share any personal info?
I have one son Garrett who is a junior at Hill City High School.   
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading books, traveling and spending time outdoors.   
The one thing I enjoy the most during the summer months is spending time at the ballfield watching my son play baseball for Post 22.
